Dentures

At Topeka Dentistry, Dr. Ben Rutherford and Dr. Carrie Peterson work hard to create natural-looking dentures to give the people of Topeka, KS and the surrounding community back their beautiful and stunning smiles.  

Missing a tooth can have a negative impact on your health, what you can eat, how you speak, and your oral health. It can also make patients feel embarrassed when they smile, or when they laugh or meet new people. 

Patients who have complete tooth loss may benefit from full dentures, while those with partial tooth loss may be recommended partial dentures. 

Many people might think of old-fashioned dentures that looked comically large and looked artificial. Modern dentures are handcrafted to look natural and fit along the contours of your gum line. 

Quality Dentures in Tokepa, KS

We make our dentures out of high-quality and durable dental material that is fabricated to enhance your smile. 

Every dental procedure starts with an exam to check your oral health, and if there are any underlying dental issues. We will take a digital x-ray to ensure that the dentures are a precise fit. Your restorative dentist will use digital impressions to create models that help craft the dentures. 

Once we complete the dentures, we will make any final improvements so that they fit your mouth snugly and comfortably. 

When we create partial dentures, we may use neighboring teeth to provide support. 

Implant-Supported Dentures

Without a tooth root to support and stimulate bone growth, your jaw bone can recede and alter the shape of your smile. Over time, dentures may need to be replaced to fit properly.

Dental implants can restore bone and gum loss, and patients won’t have to worry about adhesives or relines. Placing four to six dental implants in your arch can provide support for dentures to attach securely. 

Dental implants are thin titanium roots that secure into your jaw bone. Your dentures can attach to your dental implants and provide reliable tooth replacement. 

Caring for Your Dentures

Dentures can last for many years with proper care and maintenance. Keeping them clean is as simple as soaking them daily and using a special toothbrush and paste to brush and clean them. 

Routine visits to your Topeka, KS will allow us to check the condition of your dentures and make sure they are healthy and not cracked.
